It is usual for children to attend a kindergarten program one or two years before they start primary school. This is often called ‘three year old kindergarten’ and ‘four year old kindergarten’.
GEKA offer both 3 year old and 4 year old kindergarten programs at all our kindergartens.
3 year old kindergarten programs run for 5 hours per week (or 10 hours per week only at GEKA Orrong Road Kindergarten)
4 year old kindergarten programs run for 15 hour per week (or 22.5 hours per week only at GEKA Orrong Road Kindergarten)
For timetable specifics please visit our timetable page
Applications OPEN from 01 MAY THE YEAR prior to your child attending 3 year old kindergarten and TWO years prior to your child attending 4 year old kindergarten. Completing an Application will place your child on a waitlist and is not a guarantee of place. Demand for places is strong, so we recommend applying early.
3 and 4 year applications/enrolments are NOT linked, and we recommend you complete BOTH a 3 year old and 4 year old Kindergarten Registration Application concurrently. 4 year old applications are made via Glen Eira City Council
Evidence of up-to-date immunisation MUST be provided prior to your child commencing at GEKA. An Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Immunisation Register is the ONLY form of documentation accepted for the purpose of enrolling at GEKA. To learn more, visit this link CHILDHOOD IMMUNISATION
Prior to enrolment, we strongly encourage families to view one of our GEKA Kindergartens. The Kindergarten Tour is an invaluable experience which will enable you and your child to view our flexible play based programs, explore the kindergarten environment and ask questions. Please visit our Tour booking page for tour dates and booking form.
Research suggests that the importance of early childhood has tremendous benefits.
